  • Credit: 3
  • Semester: 1
  • Prerequisite: None


This course discusses the relationship between the physical processes of the atmosphere and air quality. The student will be taught the structure, composition, atmospheric boundary layer, and energy balance of the atmosphere and apply them to model the dispersion of air pollutants using AERSCREEN and AERMOD models.
